Details on the death of the singer, whose career was sidelined with drug abuse and her marriage to Bobby Brown, are slowly coming in, but the cause of death has yet to be established.  According to Mark Rosen of the Beverly Hills Police Department, she was found in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel not breathing this afternoon.  She was then officially pronounced dead at 3:55 PM, PT.

Rosen said that there appeared to be no criminal intent.
